A transgender weightlifter who is biologically male but competes as female has been stripped of four world records, just days after his story went viral.
Mary Gregory competed in a 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation meet in Virginia in late April, breaking the female world records for age and weight in Masters world squat record, open world bench record, Masters world deadlift record and Masters world total record, AOL reported.

But Paul Bossi, president of 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation, says in a statement Gregory should have been classified as male. Bossi and the board of directors met April 29, two days after the competition.

Gregory will be placed in a new transgender division. The board of directors, Bossi said, had been working on the new transgender policy but had not completed it before Gregory signed up…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
